Saving Money on NHS Repeat Prescriptions: Tips and Tricks for Reducing Prescription Costs

NHS repeat prescription service

Those who take multiple medications know that prescription costs can quickly add up. While some groups do get their NHS prescriptions covered, many of us have to pay out of pocket for the medications we need. If you’d like to save money on the prescriptions you regularly take, Pharmacy to My Door can help.

How Much Do NHS Prescriptions Cost?

At the time of writing, the current cost for an NHS prescription in England is £9.35. This cost will apply to each separate medication you receive a prescription for.

Certain groups are eligible for free NHS prescriptions, such as:

  • People over the age of 60
  • Children under 16
  • Anyone aged 16-18 in full time education
  • Pregnant women
  • People with a valid medical exemption certificate
  • Those on a low-income
  • People receiving benefits

If you think that you are entitled to have your NHS prescription costs covered, speak to your GP surgery. You can also find more information about exemptions on the NHS website.

How Can I Save Money on NHS Repeat Prescriptions?

One of the easiest ways to save money on your medications is to apply for an NHS Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC) card. A PPC card will cover all your NHS prescriptions (including dental prescriptions), no matter how many you take.

The current costs of a prescription prepayment certificate are:

  • £30.25 for a 3-month PPC card
  • £108.10 for a 12-month PPC card
